Laurel Hill and West Laurel Hill Cemeteries are perfect places for your group’s next outing!

The Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries welcome school groups, community groups, organizations, and friends and families who are interested in taking a personalized tour of our cemeteries. A Friends tour guide will lead your group by foot on a tour that tells the story of these national sites of historic significance and the fascinating people buried here.

ALL privately organized group tours and outings MUST be approved in advance by the Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries, and guided tours MUST be conducted by one of our certified Tour Guides or a staff member. External organizations and parties are forbidden from using the cemeteries for personal profit or private activities not first approved by Laurel Hill and West Laurel Hill. We are not a public or city-run park, but a nonprofit, privately-owned organization. Proceeds raised through our public and private programming directly support the preservation of Laurel Hill Cemetery as a National Historic Landmark and West Laurel Hill Cemetery as a listed site on the National Register of Historic Places.
